When it comes to trendy apparel with bold colors and patterns that stand out, few companies are putting out what the folks at Sligo Wear have been doing for the last few years. Raising the bar in apparel for a company is not an easy task to accomplish with each line, but over the last few years, this brand has done so with each and every release. Earlier in the year THP took a look at the Spring line and came away pretty impressed and here is an interview with PGA Tour star Brian Gay discussing that line and the Sligo brand overall.
THP got its first look at the Fall Collection in January at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL and immediately came away impressed. Thoughts went as far as saying that some staff members (me included) felt as though that this line was the best that Sligo had ever designed and produced. This line was an evolution of all of their previous designs and came to head like a collision of bold and bright colors as well as their patented use of stylish designs that you just do not see elsewhere.
What Stands Out
The first thing that stood out from this line is the color choices that are used. Shirts like the O’Brien that our readers have seen (and loved) in previous seasons have been revamped with new colors such as the Storm, which is a deep and wonderful purple, or the Smoke, which is a lovely platinum color. Once again, the company stood out for their “mix & max” ways as both of these shirts feature the same secondary colors making matching to multiple outfits a breeze.
It is the small details such as this that makes the brand so well received. The colors being imported throughout the different patterns make creating outfits a breeze and then couple that with the designs that Sligo has created for Fall being so well done and you have an absolute winner on your hands.
Directly above you will see the Sligo Vibe shirt and the color is called City Blue. It is one of the featured colors of the Fall line and something that stands out extremely well both as the primary shirt color as well as a secondary look.
Digitile is a look that we saw a few seasons ago and came away extremely impressed. THP is happy to report that the Sligo brand has it back with some new looks in the Fall line as it comes in Smoke, Metal and Miami and all three of them offer something a little unique to the wonderful pattern that our readers have come to enjoy. Digitile is a unique Moroccan design that creates a stylish look that is both different and bold without being over the top.
The new Fall line for 2011 is one of the best THP has seen to date. There are just too many pieces to showcase in a review article, but when a company puts together a line that combines good materials, great color patterns and wonderful designs it is worth taking notice. Few brands make us stand up and take notice with every new release that becomes available, however Sligo seems to be doing that with every new collection that comes out.
